Lips of a liar

100 words x 365 days

I don’t remember the day it all fell apart. I only know that it did. As I stood in the middle of the road watching you drive away, I dropped to my knees, screaming for a God that I didn’t believe existed. How could something so extraordinary burn out so quick? As the tears burned my eyes, I remembered those words you used to lure in another victim to your sickness. “I will fight for you even when there is nothing left inside. I promise,” he whispered with bait-tainted lips. In his eyes, I saw all my dreams come true.
